Indian batsman Virat Kohli has been given a reprimand for breaching the International Cricket Council (ICC) Code of Conduct after pleading guilty to a level one offence.

He was charged with showing dissent at an umpire's decision and pleaded guilty to the charge after his side's 16-run defeat to the West Indies in the third One-Day International in Ahmedabad.

Kohli stood his ground after being given out leg before wicket to spinner Sunil Narine and the player accepted that this constituted an act of dissent.

The charge was laid by on-field umpires Tony Hill and Sudhir Asnani as well as third umpire Vineet Kulkarni.

Match referee David Boon commented: "Accepting umpires’ decisions is part and parcel of playing cricket and on this occasion Virat clearly showed dissent when he had been given out."
